Whether it’s a natural disaster, a data breach, the loss of a key physician, or COVID-19, a crisis presents an unsettling circumstance to any leader. Crisis management is a “evergreen” topic for physician leaders. Always preparing for (and learning from) a crisis presents an opportunity for leaders to thrive. Successful physician leaders prepare their teams, put communications in place, and shore up their systems to manage the situation at hand.
In this SoundPractice episode, we talk with Max Reibolt, CPA, president and CEO of The Coker Group, about the characteristics, communication skills, and organizational support leaders need during a crisis. Max shares examples from his many decades of healthcare leadership and consulting.
You’ve probably heard stories from friends, family members, or colleagues who quit a job because of a toxic person - someone who belittles, humiliates, shames, or bullies others. Maybe you’ve even left a job because of such a person. Toxic employees not only take a toll on their coworkers’ emotional psyches but the financial outcomes of their organizations as well.
In this SoundPractice episode, Cheryl Toth digs into the issue of handling toxic team members and bosses with Mitchell Kusy, PhD., the author of Why I Don’t Work Here Anymore. Kusy is a professor in the Graduate School of Leadership and Change at Antioch University and an international consultant to leadership. He presents research, evidence-based tactics, and concrete examples of how to restore workplace civility and increase financial performance after toxic employees leave an organization. Dr. Kusy’s latest article will appear in the Sep/Oct issue of Physician Leadership Journal; link below.
